“In view of the shortage of skilled workers and demographic factors, the topic of training and further education at Bechtle remains at the top of our agenda for the future. We offer young people a sustainable perspective with diverse development opportunities in the dynamic and highly exciting environment of the IT industry. At the same time, we benefit from the breath of fresh air and the new perspectives that are brought into the company via our trainees and dual students. We therefore expressly encourage them to get involved in their working environment at Bechtle while still in training, so that together we can shape the future with IT,” says Dr. Thomas Olemotz, CEO of Bechtle AG. “We are pleased about the great interest in training at Bechtle and are grateful for the trust placed in us by the young people and their families.”
Increases in all areas
While technical job profiles dominate the training, business administration subjects lead the field in the subjects studied. Thus, of the trainees, 429 (previous year: 402) are currently completing technical training and 316 (previous year: 248) commercial training. Among the dual students, 81 (previous year: 74) opted for a business degree and 43 (previous year: 38) for a technical degree. With 741 (previous year: 687) apprentices and dual students, the majority are spread across Bechtle’s German locations.
New: Sustainable Management and Marketing Communication
This year, Bechtle has expanded its wide range of apprenticeship professions to now 13 and added marketing communication specialists. The commercial and technical professions include e-commerce clerks, IT system management and digitalization management, as well as IT system electronics technicians, IT specialists in various specifications, and warehouse logistics specialists. In cooperation with the dual universities, Bechtle offers students a total of ten wide-ranging business and technical courses of study, including Digital Commerce Management, International Business, Business Informatics, Online Media, and Cyber Security. Here, too, a new course of study complements the existing range: in Sustainable Management, the highly relevant and future-oriented field of sustainability is the focus of the course.
Traditionally, Bechtle invites all new trainees and students to the Mikado introductory event at its headquarters in Neckarsulm. The aim is to strengthen the feeling of togetherness right from the start and to offer opportunities for establishing personal networks beyond the boundaries of one’s own location. Participants also get to know Bechtle’s central service units and gain insights into the company’s history and culture. It is the prelude to a diverse range of seminars throughout the training program, which ends with targeted exam preparation courses. In addition, a specially designed mentoring program places experienced colleagues at the side of the trainees and students, which significantly supports rapid integration into the company.
Application phase for 2024 training positions underway
For the start of training in the fall of 2024, Bechtle has already published the training and study positions and received the first applications. Bechtle offers the vacancies to be filled as well as information on training and the dual study programme and application opportunities via bechtle.com/careers.
